Desmoglein 2 is a member of the desmosomal cadherin family that comprise the desmogleins and desmocollins. Desmogleins and desmocollins connect extracellularly via homophilic and heterophilic interactions. Desmosomes are cell-cell junctions between epithelial, myocardial, and certain other cell types. Desmoglein subfamily members have been identified and all are members of the cadherin cell adhesion molecule superfamily. Desmoglein-2 is a 122.2 kDa protein composed of 1118 amino acids. It is a calcium-binding transmembrane glycoprotein component of desmosomes in vertebrate cells. Desmoglein-2 is highly expressed in epithelial cells and cardiomyocytes. Desmoglein-2 is localized to desmosome structures at regions of cell-cell contact and functions to structurally adhere adjacent cells together. Mutations in desmoglein-2 have been associated with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and familial dilated cardiomyopathy. Increased Desmoglein 2 expression is associated with tumor progression in hepatocellular carcinoma and functions as a promising biomarker for unfavorable prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma. BioVision’s Desmoglein-2 (Human) ELISA Kit is used for the quantitative detection of Desmoglein-2 in serum, plasma, tissue homogenates and other biological fluids. It is based on the principle of sandwich ELISA. The capture antibody is pre-coated on 96-well plates. The standards, test samples and biotin conjugated detection antibody are added to the wells subsequently, and washed with wash buffer. HRP-Streptavidin is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. The HRP enzymatic reaction is detected using TMB-substrate. Finally, an acidic stop solution terminates the enzymatic reaction. The color developed is directly proportional to the amount of Desmoglein-2 in the sample.
